The History of Silent Disco 

What is a Silent Disco

A silent disco is a system of using radio transmitters to wirelessly transmit up to 3 channels of different music simultaneously to Silent Disco wireless headphones with built in receivers.

 

The headphones allow the user to switch between 2 or 3 audio channels, giving the unique experience of large groups of people being able to listen, sing and dance to different music at the same time - those without headphones will hear no music!

The History of Silent Disco

1967 - The First Ever Silent Disco 

An early reference to silent discos is Astroboy's 1967 Japanese science fiction story 'The Summer of 1993' where the main character attends a party where everyone wears headphones.

1990 - Silent Disco Headphones at Outdoor Parties

The silent disco concept was used by eco-activists in the early 1990s, using silent disco headphones at outdoor parties to minimize noise pollution and disturbance to the local wildlife.

 

1994 - Silent Disco Headphones at Glastonbury Festival  

In 1994 Glastonbury Festival linked its on-site radio station to the video screen sited next to the Main Stage, allowing festival goers to watch late night World Cup football on the giant screen after the sound curfew by using their own silent disco headphones at Glastonbury Festival.

 

2000 - Silent Disco for BBC

In May 2000 BBC Live Music held a silent disco at Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff, where the audience listened to a band Rocketgoldstar, and various DJs through silent disco headphones.

2002 - Silent Disco at a Museum

In May 2002 artist Meg Duguid hosted 'Dance with me' a silent dance party at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago where she created an outdoor club installation in which a DJ spun a transmission to wireless silent disco headsets that audience members put on and danced to.

2008- Silent Disco Festival on tour

HUSHconcerts, previously Silent Frisco, was the first company to produce a multi-city Silent Disco tour in 2008 with Silent Soundclash, kicking off at the Winter Music Conference in Miami.

2011- Silent Disco added to the Dictionary

The Oxford Dictionary Online added the term silent disco to their website in February 2011.
